2 x 5.8g SPW antennas on a set of Foxtech AIO goggles will do that easily.

By your question I will take a guess you are wanting to try FPV for the first time. Research the beginner threads for basic knowledge as there are no magic pills or shortcuts. Questions on a whole slew of topics are asked and answered for newbies. Now having said that:

Park flyers tend to be no more than a 1/2 mile as that is beyond LOS. At those distances a simple 200 Mw TX/Rx 5.8 gHz video with a set of IBCrazy Clover leaf and Skew Planner antennas will fit the bill. If you are using 2.4 ghz for AC control you should still be good. Remember the goal is also to get your aircraft back, time-after-time. 5.8 is a LOS signal as it's blocked by trees, leaves, hills buildings. Things go real bad when you lose your signal. On the viewing end you can start with a monitor that doesn't blue screen (blue screen of death). your ground station can be powered by LiPOs. There is a ton more I could go into but the threads are valuable source of information.

Agree.....read the stickies. Thats why they are there. Not trying to be rude, but they will probably answer all of your questions as well as teach you what you need to know next.
